What IS/WAS Your Favorite Game Show?

I'm sure some of you are too young to remember the hey-day of great game shows but as a kid I used to love staying home "sick" from school and watching game shows 'til Bugs Bunny came on at 3:00.
My all time favorite? Probably Match Game '75.
Charles Nelson Riley was definitely one our country's greatest actors.

I forgot about that one. I loved that show, right after Hogan's Heroes.

BY FAR...

PRESS YOUR LUCK!

Why they haven't remade that classic show is beyond me - it was the greatest game show of all time.

Right on! Plinko is just the coolest. Family Feud was cool, when Richard Dawson and Ray Combs hosting it, but with Louie Anderson hosting and with the whole new set doesn't seem the same. Match Game PM is also a notable.
But my all-time favorite game show is Press Your Luck. Peter Tomarken was the man, and that show was awesome. They finally re-run it on Game Show Network

Probably because the only way it would be a success is if they had this woman on as a regular contestant.

I saw her PYL appearance on Game Show Network a couple of weeks ago, and it made me realize that her over-the-top performance is still burned into my feeble old brain from the first time I saw it, for better or worse.

COME ON! BIG MONEY! NO WHAMMIES! AND...STOP!!!

Of course, my all-time fav has to be Bob and his beauties, err...
The Price is Right!

I was always partial to that one with the giant devil slot machine thing... not even sure what the name is anymore. Gotta say I like The Price is Right a bit more though, but that's such a boring answer
